Dark in color, with lots of blackberry, mineral, licorice and a hint of toasty oak. Full-bodied, with velvety tannins and a long, caressing finish. Balanced and generous, with lots of fruit underneath. Best after 2011. (JS)
Lifted cassis and hedgerow fruits. Harmonious balance between ripe, dark fruit, integrated oak, and chewy tannins. Attractive. Drink 2013-18.
A consistently well-made cru bourgeois, this wine exhibits a deep ruby color and a nice, earthy nose with hints of burning embers intermixed with black fruits, herbs, and spice. The wine displays moderate tannin, medium body, good length and ripeness. Drink it over the next 7-8 years. (RP)

Took this on a overnight fishing trip with friends and thought several times through the day how terrific this would taste after the fish and I were cleaned and cooled down. I was disappointed when I opened the bottle. finding the wine to be musty and tannic. So I passed happy hour with a cold beer while I let the bottle breathe and the glass sit, hoping time and air would do something miraculous. Just before dinner I took a sip to discover this wine had smoothed out and was tasting very good. It continued improving through the evening. This is a terrific Bordeaux for the money; you will enjoy it very much if you have the patience to decant it for at least an hour or two before serving.

I agree with Susan. Open the bottle a day before you want to drink it and a lot of the tannins will be smoothed out.
